Peter Helck – 24 Hour Race Artwork

The artwork above by Peter Helck shows us the deplorable conditions that some of these 24 hour grinds were held in. This depicts the 1907 Point Breeze 24 hour race that we have already covered that was won by Ralph Mulford and Harry Michener. Follow the link to the previous post to where you can see photos of the car and crew just dripping with mud.

The preliminary drawing below shows Ralph Mulford on his way to winning the 1908 Brighton Beach September 24 hour race. His co-driver was Cobe and the two of them set a record by covering 1,107 miles in their six-cylinder Lozier. Both works are from the book Great Auto Races, courtesy of the Helck family who have recently created a Peter Helck fan page on Facebook in addition to the Artists webpage.
